So they have 2 parts the user can press:

2. Arrow button part

In different situations I want to disable some of these buttons completely or just partly (some menu items of the dropdown menu).
There is now only one problem I can't find a proper solution for:
When I want to disable the main part of the dropdown button and leave the arrow part enabled to access the dropdown menu and its related actions.
